Sometimes when a business contracts with a web development company to create a web page the domain is registered in the name of the web developer not the name of the business. This can be a very big deal if the web developer goes out of business or if the business owner wants to change from one vender to another. There is an online tool called whois you can use to check to see who owns a domain name. You can access whois from Go Daddy or any domain registry site. Just type in the domain and whois will tell you who owns it.
